Pleasant shaver, not very durable

"Braun recommends changing your shaver’s foil & cutter block every 18 months" - that's great, but I have yet to use a foil & cutter block that lasts me longer than 3-4 months. I've bought a new Braun WaterFlex razor about 11 months ago and have worn out 4 blocks since. The foil will typically tear at one of the sides, near the end of the foil. The resulting projecting metal is very sharp and can give you some nasty (but superficial) cuts. As my beard is not extremely heavy and I only shave half my face - as I have a goatee and sideburns, I don't think the failure are due to overuse. And as the foils keep breaking in the same spot for all of the blocks, I think it's simply a design flaw. Can't do better than 2/5, sorry. And that's from a life-long Braun shaver user. Sadly, this has been the worst Braun shaver I've owned in my life.

No, I do not recommend this product.

We hate to hear you weren't completely satisfied in your 51B Replacement Head. It may be helpful to know that our foil and cutters should last between 12 and 18 months, depending on your shaving method, beard type, and how often you clean the parts. Since this wasn't the experience we'd hope for, please give us a call at (800) 272-8611 so we may assist you further.
